MCDONOUGH, Ga. -- Sam Fisher is Henry County Schools' Work-Based Learning Student of the Month for April 2014.
Fisher recently graduated from Union Grove High School in McDonough. He works at Truett's Grill in Morrow, where the manager, Jesse Gilchrist, appreciates his dedication to the job.
"Sam is hardworking and willing to do whatever it takes to go the second mile for every guest he comes in contact with," Gilchrist, a fellow Union Grove High grad, said in a release.
Fisher said working at Truett's Grill and being involved in the Work-Based Learning program taught him valuable life skills, including teamwork, independence, patience, responsibility and time management. He will begin his freshman year at Georgia State University this fall and plans to pursue a career in health care.
Henry County Schools' Work-Based Learning program provides high school students with real-world work opportunities that supplement the lessons they learn in the classroom.
